Random Rants..Holiday Special

( – promoted by Mike Rossettie (DD4RP))

Just a few random thoughts.

1)I saw Barbara Anderson in a local bookstore today. It got me thinking. Is there anyone that has impacted public policy dialog in Massachusetts more in the past 30 years?

2)The abortion discussion in this country will never end. It’s a bit like bringing peace to the Middle East. That being said, I’ve always wondered why true social conservatives don’t include in their abortion discussion the issue of making adoptions less expensive and less bureaucratic, particularly domestic adoptions.

3)I won’t be voting for Mr. Mihos, but I wish him well. It does sound like his fall was worse than we are being told.

4)What happened to Dick Morris?

5)Rajon Rondo sure is fun to watch.

6)Pats 31 Jags 13.

7)Deval Patrick’s Campaign Manager, Sydney Asbury, is a 2003 grad of Bowdoin. I’ve met her and wonder if she is keeping the seat warm for someone else. Deval’s Field Director, Clare Kelly is a 2006 BU grad. Sorry, but I’m not impressed.

8)First week of January the house takes up “Ed Reform.” I know ed reform and that is not ed reform! Real ed reform takes more balls than the Governor or Legislature have combined.  

9)Senator Galluccio should resign. He also deserves some privacy once he does resign. He needs help and he won’t get it in prison.

10)I’m guessing Cahill either bails out or gets less than 5% of the vote. He is unappealing on so many levels.

    I agree on most.

    1. Barbara Anderson is wonderful and smart as a whip.

    2. I am glad abortion won’t go away because it is murder.

    3. Neither Mihos nor Baker has yet earned my vote, but I am sure I will vote for one of them.

    4. I hope Mihos kept his receipt for Dick Morris’ work.

    5. Eh, so-so.

    6. Pats are now hugely overrated.

    7. I think Deval Patrick is keeping the seat warm for someone else.  Hopefully a Republican.

    8. Anytime the government talks about taking up some kind of reform – my wallet gets a bit thinner.  Why can’t they leave us the hell alone?

    9. Gooch! Nuf said!  I do hope he gets help though.

    10. Cahill might go to jail.

  • This one hurts. I have been telling my 15 year old son to watch Mike Lowell play third base because he may be the best third baseman you ever see in a Red Sox uniform.

    Then they go and attempt to trade him because he can’t field!

    Theo is making me look bad. Part of me hopes Mike Lowell makes Theo look bad.

    I don’t pretend to know Barbara Anderson nor did I bother her in the bookstore. That’s a place to leave people alone. She did speak at a recent Swampscott RTC meeting and she is actually pretty funny. She also appears to have mellowed a bit. Impressive lady!

  • 11.  It’s a sad commentary on the Mass GOP in that it is much easier to find a homosexual among our prominent politicians than it is to find a veteran.  To find a veteran who has actually deployed and served on active duty (not for training, which is what is necessary for federal recognition as a veteran)is damn near impossible, at least among our GOP polical leaders.  

  • we social cons are normally pro-small govt. of course we are  for making adoptions easier. I also believe that religious groups should be able to choose i who they want to give a child to (ie if they want to let gay couples adopt from them or not) without fear of being being defunded by the state/fed govt.

  • You have proven my point on #2. No disrespect intended. I fall into the camp that thinks a kid is best off in a loving home. Period. Again, no disrespect intended.
